of Human Wants
wants are countless in number and various in kinds. When one want is satisfied
another want crops up. Human wants multiply with the growth of civilization and
become habits; for example, when a man starts reading news paper in the
morning, it becomes a habit. Same is the case with drinking tea or chewing
cannot satisfy all our wants, at the same time we can satisfy particular wants
at a given time. When one feels hungry, he takes food and that want is
alternative ways to satisfy a particular want eg. Idly, dosa or chappathi.
wants are not equally important. So, there is competition among wants. Hence,
we have to choose more urgent wants than less urgent wants.
satisfaction of a particular want requires the use of more than one commodity.
Example: Car and Petrol, Ink and Pen.
wants occur again and again. For example, if we feel hungry, we take food and
satisfy our want. But after sometime, we again feel hungry and want food.
